How'd you play?

Team Cup match play event to end the league season. Won 4 and 3 in alternate shot, 1/2'd the 4-somes match, and then won singles 2 and 1. 

Saturday's rounds I hit the ball pretty solidly all day, and my partner was able to bail me out when I got wild. Sunday was a roller coaster. Up 5 after 6 holes, gave it all back by 14th, then had back-to-back wins on 16 and 17 to win 2 and 1. All at the Innisbrook resort with Sunday singles on the Copperhead course.

Not a good day - ended up with a 50 on the front and a 44 on the back. Biggest issue was putting. I was missing putts every which way, including a 3 footer for a bird. They just plugged the greens and so much sand on them I felt like I was putting in the bunkers.  This is what I was dealing with.

Played Bill Roberts GC in Helena yesterday for the first time.  I got paired with 3 ladies who play there a couple of times/week.  They were all good players and pretty much dead straight down the middle.  I wore myself out repeating "nice shot". It was great having three caddies explaining the course to me as we went along.  At one hole, two got into a minor dispute as to whether I should lay-up or cut a corner over the tree line 😂.  I chose the latter, made it, and they were thrilled.

It's a nice course and very well maintained.  The front 9 is the newer layout and it is quite a bit more challenging.  Three of the holes have double dog legs and present a bit of a quandary off the tee.  I was hitting the G410P really well and opted to go for every challenge.  The back 9 is the original course, has considerably less slope, and more open off the tee box. My score reflected the difference. I ended up with a 44/39 (-1 thru #15).  Upon reaching the tee box after getting a birdie on #12, they had 4 cups out and a flask of Bailey's Irish Cream... apparently this drinking game is catching on beyond Yuma 😀.

Got a promotion at work and have not had hardly any time to play.  I was able to play 9 holes on Saturday evening.  Played ok, hit a few good very good shots and some very dumb ones.  Best was a 4 iron from 225 on a par 3 to a tucked pin - settled around 15 feet aaaaaaand missed the putt.  Greens were marked up from the days play and playing pretty slow so no big deal.  Glad I got to get out and play.  Have an outing upcoming at Laurel Valley Golf Club which is always in pristine shape.

Tuesday Men's League - 18 stroke play. Not so hot - the Driver was working, but on the front the short game was abysmal. On the back I was able to recover some with a 44. 
But wait..... I get home my wife says she'd like to play 18. So I told her I'd go with her and probably only play the front.....................wait for it....a bird on #4..................................................................................................................

AND my nemesis hole - the one that the best I've ever done is a bogie. I parred that hole THE SPELL  is broken! AND I booked a 41 - best I've ever done on the front!

I can only hope. Actually I was so energized with the 41, I secretly wanted to play the back - but knew we'd run out of daylight and she wouldn't be able to finish 18. ....as the saying goes "happy wife......" BTW she played the front and back well.

Started with a triple on the first hole of league tonight, but fortunately, that was the only trouble that started with a bad drive. I hit 4 of 5 of the remaining fairways and ended up +2 over the remaining 8 holes with 13 putts total. Irons weren't terribly sharp, but everything else was in pretty good shape.

Got to play @edingc's home course, Western Greens, hauled booty out of work and got in 18! Solid course, especially on the cheap.

47, 42: 89.

36% FIR, 39% GIR, 38 putts.

Front 9 was pretty shaky. Most of it boiled down to just not being comfortable with the new putter (more to come soon 😏), but had 4 holes where I 3-putted. Bunch of absolute bunnies I just whiffed. Settled in on the back, especially with the putter. Only had 17 putts on the back.

Ball striking felt really good. Felt like I was actually seeing the improvements from the range translate over to the course which was great.

I feel like I'm primed for a good round, hopefully I'll be reporting back here soon with confetti and balloons!

Bet it was in great shape today, dried out a bit from the rain last week.

Glad you got a chance to play. Not the nicest course around us, but a decent value considering. Greens play tough, there's a ton of subtle undulations from over the years that are tricky. I still have at least one putt a round that doesn't do anything like I'd expect.

Bad day at The Babe......43/45:88 played off almost bare fairways, drives were fine, but approach shots were hit a tad fat or soft off very thin fairways. Seems they scalped the fairways after dealing with several weeks of heavy rain. Instead of gradually cutting down the Bermuda, they scalped it leaving no leaves for photosynthesis to occur.
